My Stockholm Guide – Where To Eat

Many people ask me which restaurants I recommend eating at when they visit Stockholm. So, in this blog post, I will share my favorite places for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the capital, whether it’s for a weekday or weekend. I have eaten at these places myself and can highly recommend them all. Some places cost a little more than others but the experience and the flavors are worth it! Keep in mind that in some cases you may also need to book a table, especially at the dinner restaurants 🙂

Drinking places in Stockholm

It is always nice to have a drink before the food and you do it best if you come in pretty good time, due to it usually gets crowded on all outdoor terraces when it is good weather in Stockholm. I suggest you arrive around 17 o’clock if not even earlier for best spots.

During summer time I love to visit rooftop bars that are in Stockholm but also the terraces that are opening up more and more around here. Perfect when the sun is shining and the temperate is hot outside! These are the places I highly recommend to visit for a drink in Stockholm:

  • Bank terrace – Arsenalsgatan 6, City
  • Hallwylska – Hamngatan 4, City
  • Orangeriet – Norr Mälarstrand Kajplats 464, Kungsholmen
  • TAK – Brunkebergstorg 2-4, City
  • Stockholm under the stars – Brunkebergstorg 2-4, City
  • The terrace at Grand hotel – Södra Blasieholmshamnen 8, City
  • Dramatenterrace – Nybrokajen 2, City
  • Strandvägen1 – Just as the name is called, the place is at Strandvägen 1, City
  • Strömterrassen by the Opera – Strömgatan 14, City
  • Hotel Diplomat – Strandvägen 7
  • Lydmar hotel – Södra Blasieholmshamnen 2
  • Arnolds – Biblioteksgatan 21, City
  • Nobis hotel – Norrmalmstorg 2-4, City
  • Scandic Continental – Vasagatan 22 (see picture below)

These are the places I go to for either a drink, breakfast, lunch or dinner in Stockholm and can strongly recommend every place, otherwise I wouldn’t have mentioned them 🙂
